Overview

An informative and emotionally involving portrait of an important subculture, Sound and Fury allows us a glimpse inside the world of the deaf community, while dealing with a controversial operation that some people in that community are resisting. Cochlear ear implants have allowed many deaf people to hear and learn to speak, but many in the deaf community who are happy with its supportive and nurturing atmosphere see the operation as a threat. The film focuses on the Artinian brothers -- Peter is deaf, Chris is not -- who are faced with the same decision over one of their children. Peter is married to Nita, a deaf woman, and the oldest of their three deaf children, five-year-old Heather, decides she wants the operation. Her parents are torn, wanting to accede to Heather's wishes but afraid of losing her to the land of the hearing. Chris and his hearing wife, Mari, also have three children, but only one-an infant twin-can't hear. They (and Peter and Chris's hearing parents) are all for the operation, and the film charts the progress of the debates among the family and their final decisions on the operation. Sound and Fury was screened in competition at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Tom Wiener
In fewer than 80 minutes, Sound and Fury covers an amazing amount of territory, though in the end one wishes that it had actually covered a bit more. The central debate that threatens to rip apart a family, the Artinians of Glen Cove, NY, centers on the necessity for an operation, a cochlear ear implant, that will help two of its children to hear and speak. The problem is that the family is split between the hearing and deaf members. The deaf members -- Chris and his wife, Mari -- are articulate and passionate about their happiness with life in the deaf community. They make it clear that they fear losing their very bright five-year-old daughter to the land of the hearing, should she have the implant. Their insistence, reinforced at a picnic with friends in the deaf community, that they are not handicapped, that they are capable of leading normal and productive lives, is hard to refute. But the film also dramatizes the anguish that Chris' parents and his brother, Peter, with a child who is a candidate for the implant, feel as hearing people with a deaf offspring; they want to bring that baby into their own world. The film does try to be even-handed, and if the balance tips toward those who would insist on a deaf child having the operation, it might be that not enough evidence of the deaf community's nurturing aspects is presented. Even so, Sound and Fury is an emotionally gripping document of the mixed benefits of medical scientific breakthroughs.
